Most of us have all visited the site one time or another and had a good laugh about it. But for the unfamiliar, Awkward Family Photos is a treasure trove of funny analogue (mostly) images!
Great ideas come out of innocent laughs. For instance, childhood friends Mike and Doug started and came up with the viral website Awkard Family Photos when they saw a hilarious family photo at home. Genius struck when they came to the realization that thousands, if not millions of other people have equally funny or awkward group photos at home. Thus, the site was born!
Now, the community based website receives millions of hits and submissions daily and delivers much needed laughs all over the world. How about you? Do you have a hilariously embarrassing family picture at home? We know you do! Submit it now in our Awkward Family Photo Rumble!
As one of our most seasoned community members, herbert-4's collection of photos spans over decades of experience in film photography. Many of his albums contain images that we could only dream of capturing, from a time and generation that not many of us had the chance to be part of. Not surprisingly, each photo is entitled to its own story, and herbert-4 shares the story behind this one after the jump.
Lassi, one of our awesome Petzval Lens Kickstarter backers, came to visit us at Lomography HQ this week. We had a brilliant time introducing him to the Lomography team, showing him some of the Vienna sights and generally having fun. As part of the trip, we organized a special photo-shoot in which we took photos with a vintage Petzval lens on a Sinar P2 4x5 camera. Head past the jump to find out more about the great time we had with Lassi and to see some old-school Petzval shots!

It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.
2013 was a fantastic year for Lomography. It was when we got technical, using our 20 years of analogue experience to create new products that inspired brilliant and unforgettable memories. Let's take a look back by visiting the special site that we made to honor yet another successful Lomography year!
Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.

From having a close encounter with a mountain lion to accidentally meeting Steve Jobs, Joel Sax had experienced a number of unimaginable things that have granted him a deeper sense of understanding.

Another quirky-looking analogue snapper from the 1990s, the all-automatic, all-white Olympus Ecru is certainly one of the most interesting and compact cameras you can add to your collection. Find out more about it in this installment of Lomopedia!
